On tonight’s episode of NCIS, it looks like we’re back to business after last week’s harrowing affair as the team investigates the bizarre death of a Marine, to which his friends may be linked. However, not everyone’s in the clear yet as Gibbs (Mark Harmon) is given the final word on Ziva’s (Cote de Pablo) future with NCIS, although I highly doubt it if it’s going to be anything drastic.

On last week’s kick-off, Tony (Michael Weatherly) was captured by a Sudanese terrorist and was interrogated on how did exactly he get there (perfect time for a sort of reintroduction and a refresher in one for the whole NCIS experience). He essentially told the story of the how the team worked after Ziva went back to Mossad, how he and McGee (Sean Murray) tried to find a replacement, and how the team finally realized that Ziva was in danger and was therefore need of rescuing.

The terrorist soon brought out Ziva, who was less than pleasant with seeing the two. She kept on insisting that they shouldn’t have gone there because she was ready to die (aw). But the two thankfully had something up their sleeves, and they only allowed themselves to be captured so that Gibbs and a team of NCIS agents would be able to rescue them all – including Ziva. The return to the NCIS headquarters was fascinating and sort of unreal, but all ended up well in the end. Then again, we know there’s got to be no way that NCIS will split this team up – although I did have a scary moment there when Abby (Pauley Perrette) said she felt that Ziva was no longer in their universe.

Of course, the other major thing that happened during their captivity was the sort of change in the relationship of Tony and Ziva. While under the influence of truth serum, Tony sort of admitted his feelings for her, they were downright rejected by Ziva.
